The company said that further soil sampling continued to deliver "very encouraging results". Trench sampling confirmed "outcropping gold-copper mineralisation" and rock alteration mapping also delivered "very encouraging results". Progress with components of the drill permitting process were also reported.
Malcolm Norris, Chief Executive Officer of SolGold commented: "These results are very encouraging. They give us high confidence that the T1 target area is a very worthy drill target exhibiting coincident soil geochemical anomalies in gold, copper and molybdenum, geophysical targets, outcropping porphyry mineralisation, and now supporting alteration mapping. To see the datasets aligning strengthens the target areas and with this our confidence grows."
